legs of steel
I want legs of steel
so when I give the kick of life
i know yall feel me.

i speak not of dreams, of Nebuchadnezzar's muses
but of substance, of real.

legs of steel
that crush ignorance with swift blows
opening ethereal portals of epiphany
like cracked clay pots leaking ether

...that elevated air one breathes,
enlightening, informing and transforming...

i wish to be a milkman of sorts,
delivering new nourishment
while smashing down strongholds of complacency...

a Thai warrior,
a champion of cognizance...
strong, brazen and battle-tested.

with legs of steel.
